Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time listening to music with my family. I wanted to share some of my favorites from the summer –– including songs from some of the artists performing at this week’s @DemConvention.

As always, it’s a mix of genres that travels through various eras. I think there’s something in here for everybody––hope you enjoy it.

From Beyoncé, Shatta Wale, Major Lazer’s “Already”, to Jorja Smith and Burna Boy‘s “Be Honest“, Khalid, Disclosure, Davido and Tems‘ “Know Your Worth” remix, and Wizkid and H.E.R.’s joint “Smile”.

The playlist also features, Chika, an American rapper, born to Nigerian-American parents.

Other notable additions include Rihanna and Drake‘s 2016 track “Work;” Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé‘s “Savage” remix, Mac Miller‘s “Blue World” and Anderson. Paak‘s “Lockdown”.
